    John Deere 42C Deck Mulching Kit
    John Deere 42C Deck Mulching Kit BM21816

    The mulching attachment for the 42-in. mower provides excellent performance. This is a high-performance mulching attachment that includes a mulch plug and special mulching blades. 

    Remember you will have to follow the 1/3rd rule. No more than 1/3 of the grass blade should be cut off at one time. This allows more efficient mulching and will promote the continued good health of the grass. If the desired cut height can't be achieved by cutting off 1/3, or there is clumping of the clippings, it may be required to cut higher; wait a day, then lower the mower and make a second pass. Mow at proper intervals approximately every 4 to 5 days.

    This 42C mulching kit is compatible on the following models with 42C decks that have two blades.

    SST15 With C deck Not the AP ( All-Purpose ) Deck
    Z225 EZTRAK
    L100 Series
    Brand John Deere

    I purchased and effortlessly installed the 42C mulching kit, and it was a great improvement over bagging all the clippings. The finished cut is smoother than bagging possibly due to the variables of full/empty weight of the bags. Now the lawn is consistently smooth, no clumping or piling of clippings, also mows damp grass with good results.

    This is a terrific unit. Its working great on my lawn. Instructions say to remove deck. I didn't. I lifted the front end of my z235 and supported it with a small step ladder with the brake on and wheels chocked. I left the unit out in the sun to become a little more pliable while i cleaned the deck thoroughly. it slipped right in and went on pretty easily. Whole thing took about 15-20 minutes. Well worth the cost and effort.Highly recommend this to anyone.
